UFC 245 ‘Embedded’ video, Ep. 3: Kamaru Usman hates banana art, will peel Colby Covington in Las Vegas

Reigning UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, just like the rest of us, thinks it’s absurd to pay $120,000 for a banana stuck to the wall with a piece of duct tape, especially when some jackass can just walk up and eat it for lunch.

That’s really the only time I’ve ever heard “The Nigerian Nightmare” have a legitimate reaction outside of his disdain for fellow UFC 245 headliner, Colby Covington. They’ll collide for Usman’s strap this Sat. night (Dec. 14, 2019) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Until then, we have the latest episode of “Embedded” to hold us over (via YouTube).

On Episode 3 of UFC 245 Embedded, welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has harsh words for both modern art and his opponent, Colby Covington, who experiences Vegas with a mall massage. Featherweight title challenger Alexander Volkanovski and champion Max Holloway cross paths at fight week checkin. Double champ Amanda Nunes and fiancé Nina Ansaroff get festive for a holiday photo.
